Chinese Scholar In a Cedar Tree| Atala Dorothy Toy
This Cedar Tree Scholar is a Nature Spirit portrait study by artist Atala Dorothy Toy. It is available as a 5×7 card with envelope, a signed 11×14 matted art piece and a signed 18×24 matted art piece. All sizes are pigment on archival paper.
Qualities of Cedar
The cedar tree is highly revered in cultures worldwide. It is used for protection ranging from temple doors and cedar incense to cedar closets and chests to protect items from moths! It is appropriate, then, that this Cedar scholar lives in a small alcove next to a Council Ring where people come regularly to meditate and discuss community matters. The Council Ring is a significant communications area at The Clearing, a folk school founded by the renowned architect Jens Jensen and located on a Wisconsin bluff overlooking Lake Superior.
